Netflix has renewed the Bill Burr animated comedy “F is for Family” for a third season.
“F is for Family,” co-created by Burr and Michael Price (“The Simpsons”), follows a family that lives in Middle America during the 1970s. Netflix describes the time period as one where “political correctness, helicopter parenting and indoor smoking bans weren’t part of anyone’s vocabulary.”
Burr announced the series renewal on Twitter Wednesday. Netflix also confirmed the news.

It’s the story of an Irish-American family that doesn’t always show them in the most flattering light. It’s vulgar and full of obscenities, but at the core, it’s about people.
It features a star-studded voice cast including Burr, Laura Dern, Justin Long, Sam Rockwell and more.
The second season premiered May 30 on Netflix, nearly a year and a half after the first season’s premiere. However, fans were treated to an extended season, which was upped to 10 episodes from six.
The decision comes on the heels of a number of cancellations by the streaming service, including “The Get Down,” “Sense8” and “Girlboss.” Netflix announced that it was going to be more selective with its originals, so it looks like “F is for Family” made the cut.
